Twins Podcast

Ah Blogger, a free program with the reliability of a North Korean power grid*

this is an audio post - click to play

In this week’s podcast I theorize the four main factors that have made the Twins a competitive team in the last five years or so (compared to the dark ages of the mid 1990’s) are:

1) Ron Gardenhire; a better manager than many give credit for.

2) Turf Grass; like the Rockies and their wet balls, making your home field more like your away games makes for more consistency and allows for more away game victories.

3) Joe Vavara; the Twins finally get power hitters to his for power instead of trying to force them to play stick ball thanks to this man.

4) Terry Ryan; the Twins GM doesn’t necessarily change a bad strategy, he gets better at implementing it. There’s a rule in the military that a good plan poorly executed is worse than a bad plan well executed. For Ryan I think it’s definitely the latter.

Thus my reasons why I think the latter five years of the last decade of the Minnesota Twins franchise are much better and a lot different than the former.
